British Guild of Beer Writers & International Judge
This has led me to become an International Beer Judge and a member of the British Guild of Beer Writers.
Beer & Cheese Educator
I have a passion for education with fun, so I have developed a partnership with Norfolk Wine Schools to present their beer events and deliver their BPET (Beer Professional Education Training) courses which are the UK version of the Cicerone.
Along side this I am working with the Academy of Cheese to bring the Level 1 Cheese course to Norfolk and Suffolk
Award Winning Tour Designer
I am also an award-winning tour designer for tours in the UK and Europe.
CAMRA Beer Festivals
As part of my voluntary work with CAMRA I have been the Manager of the World Beer Bar for Norwich Beer Festival for the last 4 years and I was the manager for the Great British Beer Festival (Winter) WWB 2018 & 2019, bringing into the UK some very special and unique beers.
My experience growing up within the hospitality sector means that I have an awareness of what the customer and retailer is looking for in a product and how to promote products to them using language that they can understand developed to their experience and needs.
